CMR Drop Wire Bill Woodbridge, VA
Enthusiast - Level 1
Hi. I'm trying to resolve an issue of a bill I received from CMR Claims Department in Oklahom City. A two inch diamater (very small) rotted tree partly fell in my front yard. When I pulled the tree out it must have damaged the cable. The cable was buried approximately two inches deep. I planted an 8 inch high sapling in its place. This is a recurring problem I've had because of the shallow burial of the cable since the initial install approximiately five years ago. Routine maintenance (lawn aeration) has even damaged it before. I called the CMR Claims Deparment on (8 June) and they said they would speak to Verizon to determine if it was possible to waive the fee after approximately 30 minutes of discussion. The bill is for $551.

Ironically, I'm just this week deciding if I should renew my two year agreement with Verizon or scout out a less costly option. Thanks for your help.
